Daniel / Jonathan

So, almost every day someone leans over a fence or barrier, and YELLS "DANIEL!!! HEY DANIEL!!!!!" At first I don't understand that they're yelling at me, because clearly my name is not Daniel. Then I realize that Daniel is nowhere in sight, and it sinks in... Oh, they think I'm Daniel.

It's not that I'm offended, because I think Daniel is a pretty good lookin guy. I just don't think we look much alike! Daniel tells me that he gets the same thing, with people thinking he's me. Even if people can tell us apart, they often ask, "Are you two brothers?"

Do we really look that similar?



In an effort to clear the air and set things straight, I've prepared a selection of images that may help you differentiate between Daniel and I in various circumstances. These are all from different years and in different situations. So pay close attention, there may be a test on this material later.











So, regardless of whether you see us playing a show, riding a boat around a bright lake, or asleep on a plane.... You now have no excuse to get us confused!

I wonder, do you think I could get that TEXT above our heads wherever we go?

Jenny said...

i never thought you looked alike till this post...you seem to always have the same hairdo. too funny. thanks for posting that daniel!

ykjunebug said...

Wow, I must agree. I never thought you guys looked alike until you posted this...

Have a great day!

Jenny said...

lmbo.. "thanks for posting that daniel" haha.
i will seriously make you hats.

Javean said...

Hmm...although you both are good looking guys, I never thought the two of you looked extremely alike...

Even if someone did confuse one of you with the other:
Jonathan = tattoos
Daniel = lip-ring

The signs && hats are nice touches, but what you really need is something permanent. More noticeable than lip-rings and tattoos down your whole arm...
Maybe if you guys got your names tattooed on your foreheads...???
j/k. :/

z-Girl said...

This has to be my favorite post!! This is so cute:)
You both kinda do look alike...but I can tell you apart. What kind of fan would I be if i couldn't!
Thanks Daniel...er, Jonathan:)

Z-Girl said...

And another thought...you would look kinda funny if you got that TEXT and Daniel was no where around and you just had "Me" above your head...

Katy said...

O Jon. This is great. Reminds me of the Mark/Jason connection. I once thought they were brothers.

Ida said...

Hey, I never got you 2 mixed up... But I have yelled over the gate barrier thing.. And I waited six hours to watch you walk by and walk over to me....

christena said...

OMG. you two actually look a little bit like each other. i never really realized that! people who say that must not be too familiar with you guys, cuz any real fan would not get you two confused. and you don't really look THAT much like each other anyway. like javean already said, daniel has the lipring and you have the tattoos. it's really not that hard to tell you guys apart.

j3susfreek13 said...

wow. i guess you two kinda do look alike! i never even thought that before. but i can tell you apart easily. haha! you should get hats or something that say your names! = D

Heidi said...

Actually, one of my friends asked me if you two were brothers once. haha. but I could easily tell you guys apart, i guess it probably depends on how many times they have seen you.

lalalaxkelx said...

Aww man! I was one of them!
When I first knew about your band I confused you two a lot. I don't know why though because now i can totally tell you guys apart.
Don't feel bad I confused Benner from Aaron at one of the concerts, and those guys look NOTHING alike!

Kathy said...

haha...that made me now realize you do look alike...kinda. at least maybe they think it's dan and not you when your back is facing them. haha. couldn't be as bad as the girls freaking out only after I said your name. someone brought up the Jason/Mark thing...a couple summers ago some lady took a pic of mark...I guess she thought he was Jason.

Cecily said...

I thought y'all looked alike until i saw the bobble heads, really cleared it up for me haha jk. Really though y'all do have some similarities, like in the picture with Drake y'alls face shapes look alike. But like everyone said it's very easy to tell y'all apart lol. Though i do like the text idea,you could start a new trend...i think it would catch on pretty quick lol.

Sarah said...

Jon that was great! I appreciate all the pictures, it will be much easier to tell you apart now! lol You would think if someone knew your names they would know which one belonged to which guy - guess not.

Rachel said...

Great! I never thought you two looked all that much alike. But now, BECAUSE of these pictures, I'm gonna be confused for the rest of my life!!!!! Thank you Jon, for ruining the rest of my life!!!

Jk jk!!!!

i was thinking.. what would you do if that happened? because you cant really ignore them because then they'll think your rude. but you can't wave because they will still think your dan. haha. way too complecated.

jellybelly237 said...

haha, my friend alwayz thought you guys were brothers. i don't think that, but i guess some people that don't know you as well could think that... =) heehee
great post!!

grace said...

I've never gotten you guys mixed up and I never would be able to.
When I first read this I found it hilarious.
